Welcome to a new school year from your PTA team and a special hello to all the new parents and children at Spalding Primary School, we hope your first week has been full of excitement and joy.
We would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to the PTA Annual General Meeting which will be held on Monday 30 September 2019 at 6.30pm in the school hall. This is an opportunity to meet some other parents, have some fun and maybe even volunteer a little time as we work together to bring lots of exciting fundraising events over the coming year.
If you are thinking of volunteering just a little time or on a more regular basis, then we would love to hear from you. You can drop the team a message on email at firstname.lastname@example.org or just come along to the September meeting to hear a little more information before you decide to commit.
Thank you all for your continued support, time and donations. Together we raised an amazing amount for our children's school in 2018/19 and are hoping to do even better this coming year.
To kick-start our fundraising this year, children will be bringing home a Bag 2 School this evening. Please take a look at the bag to find out what can go into it and if you have any donations to make, please bring them to school ready for the collection at 9.00am on Thursday 10th October. Bags can be left under the canopy by the school office entrance.
